2013: 15 ships delivered
1st Jan 2014
2013 has been a successful year with SeaQuest site teams having been involved in the supervision of 12 newbuilding projects, mainly in South Korea, as well as for the total of 15 vessels delivered, and further projects going into 2014 and 2015.
Delivered vessels include Suezmax crude oil tankers, LR2 and MR product carriers, Kamsarmax and Handysize bulk carriers and 50,000 dwt CO-ROs, the largest ever built at a Korean shipyard so far.
Although the number of deliveries has decreased from the previous year, which in 2012 was a record year of 35 vessels, we still recorded a more than satisfactory workload, and are now optimistically looking forward having secured newbuilding contracts for a further 31 vessels from existing clients returning to SeaQuest for their repeating new building projects, and with four brand new clients.
Thanks to the continued flow of projects and our hardworking loyal personnel we are able to preserve and enhance our know-how. Our employees are the foundation of our quality service.
